[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Polish]
The Brown-tail (Euproctis chrysorrhoea) is a moth of the family Lymantriidae. It is distributed throughout Europe.
The wings of this species are pure white, as is the body, apart from a tuft of brown hairs at the end of the abdomen. The brown colouration extends along most of the back of the abdomen in the male. In the female, the back of the abdomen is white but the tuft of brown hairs is much bigger. Ths wingspan is 36-42 mm. The species flies at night in July and August [1] and is attracted to light.

Witaj, Boguslawie!
Nie udalo mi sie dotychczas spotkac tego milego stworka, bo u mnie, na Podlasiu, lasy debowe to raczej rzadkosc, ale bede sie staral nie baczac na ewentualnosc podraznien skóry. Piekne stworzonko i zapewne niebrzydkie tez jest po dorosnieciu.
Zdjecie i opis takze godne pochwaly.

Fota jest naprawdę fajna, ale obawiam się, że to nie jest chrysorchorea. Dla mnie wygląda na jakąś sówkę raczej - niestety nie mogę sobie przypomnieć jaką...
